When to use Project, Planner & To-Do

March 03, 2020

Microsoft Project was released in 1990 and has since been the go-to application for project management. Microsoft Project allows users to develop a schedule, assign resources, track progress, manage a budget and analyse workloads, ultimately resulting in a more efficient and organised workplace. In the years since its launch, Microsoft has launched additional products, Project Online, Planner and To-Do, to its project management suite to cater to a wider range of requirements.

While we all love to be spoiled for choice, making the right choice when it comes to project management software can be difficult. Each application is designed for different stages in a project timeline or situation, so the first step is determining the requirements of the project. Is this your own project or part of a team? Are there many deliverables or very few? Is the progress of this project dependant on other people in your organisation?

The graph below explains exactly what programs should be used depending on the type and scope of project you’re working on.



Project Online



Track projects, portfolios, and timesheets

Project Online is a web-based application that can work for small, medium, and large businesses. Project managers can create schedules and assign tasks to resources who can then see their tasks and report time. Portfolio managers can look across all projects to see what people are working on.
